The present miniature depicts the Coronation of the Virgin from the Book of Hours of Étienne Chevalier. The setting is a lavishly decorated palace hall before a monumental triple throne. For the miniature Fouquet chose seven colours, which are distributed such that the viewer's gaze focuses on the Trinity and the Virgin.
